You must remember the little girl from ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ who played the role of Gia Kapur. Well, if you still don’t recall, she also played the lead in TV show ‘Karishma Kaa Karishma’. This cute little girl, who we grew up watching is also grown up now. Her name is Jhanak Shukla and she is 25-years-old.
She did many TV shows and a few films as a child artist. But as she grew up, she maintained a distance from the entertainment world. At the age of 15, she decided to take a break from her work. In an interview, she said, “When I was young, I used to think when I’ll be 24 I’ll be earning a lot, and I’d be settled and married. I’m 25 and I’m not earning anything.”
Jhanak has completed her MA in Archaeology from Deccan College Post-Graduate and Research Institute. When asked about her future plans, Jhanak said that she eventually wants to move to New Zealand and work in a museum there, and live a ‘quiet life’.
Jhanak says that she has changed a lot with time. She believes that she used to be an extrovert earlier, but now she is an introvert and prefers to spend time alone. Well, this means that our little Karishma is never returning to screens again.
